SYRACUSE-Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced the arrest and arraignment of Tequilla Miller, 28, a former finance associate at the Loretto Nursing Home, for allegedly stealing from a trust account established for residents' funds. Miller served as the Syracuse-based nursing home's "resident banker," maintaining the account and handling residents' personal funds on a daily basis. An audit of the account discovered a shortage of $21,488.10 over a period of 20 months, from November 2012 through August 2014. Miller faces up to seven years in prison on charges of grand Larceny in the third degree and falsifying business records in the first degree.
